Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The invention broadly relates to strap buckles.

2. Prior Art

A typical buckle for a flat strap is comprised of a male member and a female member attached to separate segments of a strap. The male and female members are arranged to be connected together for connecting the strap. The male member includes prongs for mating with a slot in the female member. One or both members may include a slide buckle for adjusting the length of the strap segment, which is bound inside the slide buckle by being positioned along a tightly curved path through the buckle. The tightness of the bind prevents the strap from sliding, but makes adjusting the length of the strap difficult.

A typical buckle for a round cord is comprised of a hollow cylinder with a button movably positioned inside. The button is biased outwardly by an internal spring. A hole in the button is misaligned with holes in the cylinder when the button is released, so that a cord positioned through the holes is bound by the buckle. The cord is freed for sliding through the cylinder when the button is depressed to align the holes. The push button on the round cord buckle makes adjusting the length of the cord very easy, but such a buckle cannot connect separate segments of a cord together.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Objects of the present adjustable strap buckle are to detachably connect a segment of a strap to another segment of the strap, another strap, or another member; and to enable the length of the strap to be easily adjusted.

The present adjustable strap buckle is comprised of a barrel member detachably positioned in a hook member. The barrel member is comprised of a tubular housing with a push button projecting from an open end. The button is biased outwardly by a spring. A button hole is positioned through the button, and housing holes are positioned through opposite walls in the housing. A strap is positioned through all the holes. When the button is released, the button hole is misaligned with the housing holes to bind the strap. When the button is pressed, the holes are all aligned for releasing the strap for sliding. The hook member is comprised of spaced apart hooks attached to an anchor member for attaching to clothing, a bag, luggage, etc. The barrel member is transversely positioned inside the hooks to secure the strap, wherein the segment of the strap extending from the barrel member is also positioned between the hooks.
